I can only find one James Ferrier born c1834 with parents John and Elizabeth

Janes Ferrier baptised 2 August 1835 Dundee parents John Ferrier/Elizabeth Ross

John Ferrier, a Labourer, married Elizabeth Ross 15 October 1827 in Dundee. Her father is given as Thomas Ross, occupation Late Soldier.

Not sure if that means he used to be a soldier or that he was a soldier and is now dead!

Found one tiny tree that has James born Scotland 1834 and no parents listed.

No death in Vic. for an Elizabeth Ferrier that fits.

This is an interesting death in Vic.

If James was born abt 1834 (not in Fife) to John Ferrier and Elizabeth Heatly then I can't find him in 1851 census in Scotland ?

Or his parents.
